My life is organized into three bags that I carry around in my car. Well, 3 bags and a beautiful wife is more accurate but this is really about the bags. I have my work bag, that contains my laptop and other work stuff. We work in a non assigned work area so I live out of my work bag every day at work. At the end of the work day I pack it up and take it with me to my car. Then I have my workout bag. Every morning I go to the gym, I open my bag and remove the carefully packed workout gear. On goes the triathlon watch, on goes the ipod, then I bust through whatever training I have scheduled for the day. Repack the bag and off to work. The third bag is my tennis bag, rackets and shoes and clothes to play. Every day after work, I drive to my club, change into my tennis gear and hit the courts. Generally I hit for an hour with someone and then for an hour on the ball machine. Then home. All three bags come out of the car, go on the table and get repacked for the next day. It is an interesting way to live but it feels organized.

I have just realized something about myself that I want to get onto paper(Ha). My end goal, what I really want at the end of all of my training and competing and improving, is to be asked to wear my countries colors in an international competition. I know this sounds crazy but it isn't as bad as it sounds. The US sends an aged group Davis cup team to an international tennis tournament every year with age groups starting at 35 and ending at 90 so I have a lot of time there. Also qualifying for an ITU World Cup Triathalon in your age group permits you to wear the red white and blue. I had no idea that this was what I wanted until this morning but I do know that I am willing to work to get it. Bring on the pain.

We have two cats, well really my wife has a cat and I have a cat. Mine is a beautiful Bombay named Tibalt(The Prince of Cats) Who is loving and destructive and weighs in at a svelt 17 pounds. My wifes is a Maine Coon named drifter. He is very nice and cuddly with her but really doesn't like me much.
